Maria Sharapova

Self-described as a "Cow on ice" when she plays on clay, No. 2-ranked Sharapova was one of the hottest players on the dirt coming into the French Open. Eight years since winning her first major, Sharapova's form continued right through the final, where she dropped Sara Errani 6-3, 6-2 to win the title and complete the career Grand Slam. Sharapova is now No. 1 for the first time since 2008 and grabbed her first major title in four years.
